Recently browsing this site, i came across a thread about the new justice league movie, and possible (or desirable) candidates for the iconic and beloved heroes. Threads like this interest me greatly, due to the fact that i love hearing peoples opinions, this caused me to lurk for a while. More than a few people posted their list - some great, some . . . horrible- but the one name that kept popping up was Ryan Gosling.(mostly for Batman.) And i couldn't help but think, Oh god why!? Do people really think this is a good choice?
First of all, yeah sure, Ryan Gosling is as pretty boy like Bruce Wayne, but that's not enough in my opinion. And yes, we've seen Ryan's "Darkseid" (HA!) in Drive, but we've already gotten these thing from bale, and it would be absolute torture (for me at least) to sit through 2 1/2 hours of Gosling trying to talk tough from underneath that cowl that is oh too good for him. I think that its time for a new type of Cinematic Batman, less "sexy" and more "intimidating," and i just don't think that Ryan fits the mold.
So, come on cv/batman, tell me what you think. What kind of Batman are you looking for? Do you agree with me, or do you think I'm being an idiot. If so, why?
